Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. – Lamentations 3:22-23
Processing disappointments is one of the most important things to enable you to move forward in life. Overcoming them is even better! If you want to move forward in life, it is a must to let go of and overcome the past.
From time to time, everyone has to deal with disappointment. Even if you had all the faith of the world, there would be moments in your life when the foundation of your faith was shaken, and you were being tested. It is sad to see people abandoning their faith because of this. They stop praying, reading the Bible and going to church.
There can be many disappointments on the path of man. You cannot trust anybody anymore, you did not get that promotion; that vacation; that house; that guy or girl. Or even worse: a loved one dies.
Do not get stuck
Disappointments can ruin your life and destroy your faith. That is why it is so important to learn to cope with disappointments. Many Christians are stuck in the past and never come to a new beginning: they are sad and the old wounds still hurt.
Dear people, the Bible says: ‘release, and ye shall be released’ (Luke 6:37). If you are still grieving over your loss or disappointment after many years, then something is wrong.
If you are such a person, it is time to make a decision with God’s help and say: ‘I will get my life back on track. I do not want to get stuck in the past. No matter how much pain and disappointment I have had, it is time now to put all of this in the hands of God.’ The evil one wants nothing more than for you to continue feeling self-pity.
God loves you. He has a good future full of hope for you. He does not want you to be unhappy. God wants you to leave your disappointment behind you today and to overcome.
